Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Be All The Activist You Can Be

Enough is enough.  No more faux-patriotism "give him a chance" crap.  No more excusing his vast craziness with the Dow Jones Index, as if that's the only thing that counts.  Intentions are clear, and lines have been drawn.  Pick a side and get involved!

The man is repulsive in every possible way.  His administration is dangerous and evil.  His closest advisers are neo-Nazi racists, Islamophobes and misogynists.  His political party is dedicated to greed and has been purely disgusting for the past 50 years.

And if you can't see that, if you refuse to acknowledge the awful truth, you are part of the problem.

I'm personally convinced that we must take action to bring down this administration ASAP and restore sanity to American government.  So I'm asking you to do something, now.  Do anything you can, but please do more than you're doing today.   Speak out, show up, march, protest, make phone calls, send letters and emails.  Use every tool you have.

We are in existential crisis.  Don't sit by and watch these daily horrors unfold like a bad TV show.  If you care, I beg you to step up your game and do more.  It may seem ineffective and frustrating, but every little bit can help.  Stay at it!

Almost everything you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it. Gandhi

My ability to show up and write letters is somewhat constrained, at least for now, so I'm asking you to pick up my slack and help the cause.  Do something.  Do more.
